TIGA Awards 2012 nominees: Yippee Entertainment

Champion Chimpact

TIGA Awards 2012 nominees: Yippee Entertainment
With mobile studios dominating the list of nominees for UK trade association TIGA's first ever awards, we decided to put the spotlight on some of the developers in the running.

Yippee Entertainment is up for a one award, with the Salford studio's first game – Chimpact - suitably in the running for debut game.

We caught up with commercial director Lorraine Starr to find out how the developer is taking the nomination.

Pocket Gamer: How do you feel about being named as a finalist at the first TIGA Awards?

Lorraine Starr: We are absolutely thrilled to be named as a finalist at the first TIGA Awards!

What would receiving a TIGA Award mean for your studio?

The team at Yippee Entertainment have worked exceptionally hard over the past year developing Chimpact.

We have created a game and brand that we are extremely proud of and to gain recognition for this, is very special for us.



What do you think are your chances of winning?

There are some great titles in the debut game category, but we believe that Chimpact is also a great title which has been very well received by the critics, so we have as much chance of winning as everyone else.
Thanks to Lorraine for her time.
